“This book provides a very thorough and easy to understand explanation of all the taxation issues which estate practitioners should be aware of.  Ian’s writing is so clear and his use of scenarios to illustrate points, provides a very helpful explanation of many of the taxation issues.  He has managed to address a multitude of taxation issues in this book, which really is a great resource for practitioners.  I highly recommend this book become a staple addition to the library of every estate practitioner.”
